Remodeling a deck or patio can be a great way to add value to your home and create an enjoyable outdoor living space. Here are the steps involved in the process.
The first step is to come up with a design that suits your needs and budget. This could involve sketching out ideas on paper or using a 3D modeling tool.
Depending on your local building codes, we may need to obtain permits for your project. We can check with your city or county to determine what permits are required.
If you have an existing deck or patio, we’ll need to demolish it before we can start building the new one. This may involve removing old decking, posts, and concrete footings.
Once the old structure is removed, we’ll need to build a new foundation. This could involve pouring concrete footings or installing piers.
We’ll need to build the framing for the new deck or patio. This involves installing beams, joists, and posts.
After the framing is in place, we’ll need to install the decking material. This could involve using traditional wood decking, composite decking, or another material.
If your deck or patio is elevated, we’ll need to install railings for safety. There are many different styles and materials to choose from.
Finally, we’ll want to add any finishing touches such as lighting, landscaping, or outdoor furniture to make the space comfortable and inviting.
We’ll review the project with you or your design professional to ensure that everything meets building codes, is safe for use and meets your vision.
Overall, the process of remodeling a deck or patio can take several weeks or even months depending on the scope of the project.
